Thornton Jones announces candidacy for clerk of court
My name is Crystal Thornton Jones, wife of Grady Jones II. We have two children, Chevy Lane and Case, ages 3 and 1. As a Gilchrist County native, my parents are Donald and Anne Thornton: I am the great granddaughter of the late Luther Carver and the sister of Chris (Kitty) Thornton. A dedicated Gilchrist County heritage I am proud to represent.
Hard work and determination are part of my fiber; since age 11 I’ve worked with some of the finest farmers in our area cropping tobacco, planting watermelons and turning vines. Later I worked at North Florida Holsteins in a research department, graduated from Bell High School with honors and put myself through college working at Akins BBQ. Later I graduated from Santa Fe College with honors where my determination paid off by earning two diplomas. As a Registered Dental Hygienist I work with Dr. Charlie Cox.
I am excited to announce my candidacy for the Gilchrist County Clerk of Circuit Court position. The clerk’s position is complex and requires a thoughtful, objective mind familiar with local laws. Here I want to apply my exceptional communication and interpersonal skills to the people of Gilchrist County. My goal is to uphold the standard of leadership and provide accomplishment to all aspects of the Clerk’s office. My remarkable critical thinking and organizational skills would benefit our community. The most important responsibility of the Clerk of Court is to ensure that our tax dollars are spent in accordance with the law.
If elected, I will work tirelessly with our County Commissioners to ensure a manageable budget that wisely benefits those we serve--The taxpayers of Gilchrist County. Like most of you, I understand that every dollar spent by our government is a dollar that was first earned by a hard working American. I committed to provide management authority and responsibility for the non-judicial components of the court as well as ensure that administrative and operational needs of the court are effectively and efficiently met.
If you are looking for someone that knows the value of not only hard work, but SMART work. Then I would love to have you support me in this campaign. I respectively and humbly ask for your support in the upcoming election.
